The Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business is a dynamic hub of business education and research, fueled by creativity and a commitment to preparing students to lead in a complex world.
From its founding in 1937, the school has maintained strong connections with the vibrant business community that surrounds our campus. Students gain real-world experience and perspectives by interacting with executives through class projects, internships, and industry-affiliated student organizations. Business Career Services brings students and employers together through internship opportunities, career fairs, on-site interviews and other career-building activities. Study abroad opportunities, such as the International Consulting Program, can further broaden a student’s knowledge and portfolio before graduation.
The school is a close-knit community within a large university. Take a walk around Snead Hall, our state-of-the-art building, and you will find students studying together in the atrium, collaborating on group projects in our fourteen breakout rooms, meeting with faculty in the cafe and gathering in the student organization meeting room.
Offering a wide range of programs at the bachelor's, master's, certificate and doctoral levels, the VCU School of Business ranks in the top five percent of business schools worldwide due to its AACSB International-accreditation. VCU's status as a top urban, public research university allows students to make cross-disciplinary connections while pursuing their passions within the field of business. In 2014, the top-ranked VCU Brandcenter joined the School of Business.
Upon graduation, students are welcomed into the VCU Business Alumni Society, a strong and proud network of more than 29,000 alumni.
